The Mercian Wine Circle is a private tasting group, established some 20 years ago, in the Birmingham/West Midlands are, amongst finalists of an annual wine tasting competition held by the Birmingham Post. The chairman (and also founder member) also now happens to be the wine writer for the "Birmingham Post".
The group meets monthly throughout the year in members’ homes, and over the past 12 months, we have excelled ourselves with some stunning tastings put on by our members. THese include Vintage Ports, Sherries, Rose Champagne, 1985 clarets, as well as unusual areas such as Portuguese table wines. The requirement for membership is an enthusiasm for wine and a willingness to attend on a regular basis, as our group is limited to 15 persons at any one evening.
Whilst we are all serious about our wine, there is a wide range of knowledge and tasting abilities, newcomers who share this enthusiasm will always be welcome.
